About Katelyn
How I Can Help You:

I have worked one on one with music students for 10 years. I have extensive experience in teaching classical, musical theater, and pop styles of singing, as well as acting for the stage and beginning piano.

Whether you are a beginner, or a veteran musician, I can help you cultivate your musical skills.

About Me:

I am a classically trained singer, with a master's degree in music from The Peabody Institute. I have performed at The Kennedy Center, Carnegie Hall, The Tanglewood Music Center, several local and national opera companies, and have been positively reviewed in The New York Times, The New Yorker, The Baltimore Sun, and The Boston Globe.

*** Lesson Details ***
Each student receives a personalized lesson plan, based on his/her goals, and musical background.

My singers are all trained in a cla
ssical technique, even if they specialize in contemporary singing, to help them avoid potential vocal injury.

My piano students learn to read and play music at their own pace.

My acting and spoken voice students learn to feel comfortable reading clearly, and reciting/performing on stage or other public areas.

My music theory students work one on one with me, learning basic theory (note names, durations, etc.) to advanced theory, ear training, and composition.

I am flexible and am willing to work with students of any age and level. I only require that students practice and enjoy the music they make.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music room in home with seating for parents.

*** Specialties ***
I am a classical singer, and specialize in classical voice training. However, I also have extensive experience in other singing styles, from choral to popular, and acting/oratory. I have a minor in music theory, and have taken advanced courses in music theory pedagogy.

Lisa is amazing at teaching. I was looking for singing lessons since a friend of mine asked to sing at her wedding and I am grateful I found Lisa. She has help me with the song, gave me vocal and breathing techniques to reach high tones and even fix the guitar tablatures to match my voice to play it at the wedding. I will keep taking more lessons!!

About jeison
I was born in Medellín, Colombia and began teaching myself English as a kid, learning from American TV, movies, and music. Soon I was helping my friends and classmates learn English too, and teaching languages has been my passion ever since. I have a master's degree in Spanish Pedagogy and over nine years of teaching experience, and I am currently working on a doctorate in Education focused on teaching Spanish.

I have taught a wide range of students, from children with special needs to business executives and diplomats. I adapt my lessons to the needs and interests of each individual, but my methods always focus on practical language skills that my students will really use. My classes revolve around conversation, not textbooks, and go beyond standard grammar and vocabulary to include the cultural elements that influence how people truly
use the language.

I believe that anyone can become fluent in a foreign language, regardless of whether they are able to study abroad or not. If you are serious about learning, I can design a program of study that will take you as far as you want to go with Spanish. Even if you have had difficulty with foreign languages in the past, I can help you overcome those roadblocks and achieve remarkable results.

Jeison took the time to get to know me and understand my reasons for wanting to learn Spanish and the struggles I've had with it in the past. He helps me learn the kind of Spanish I need, not just the standard textbook stuff, and he makes it fun instead of frustrating!

About Joey
I am an ex-New Yorker living in the DMV area who still hasn't lost his accent. I've played sax since childhood all the way through university, and studied under professional saxophonists and touring musicians. My official academic background is in foreign language, but music has always been a passion of mine, and I'd like to think that I've passed on that eagerness to learn to my sax and language students.

I've been giving informal private lessons to elementary through middle school-aged kids since 2007 if memory serves me. I've worked with some high schoolers and adult learners, just not as many; I'm perfectly comfortable teaching both. I tailor my lessons to the student based not just on age or skill level, but on personality - I distinctly remember what it was like to be forced to play styles of music that I had no interest in, and
wouldn't want to do the same to one of my students! If you like classical, we'll play classical; if you prefer jazz, then jazz it'll be! And if you like both, then more power to you!

I can't wait to meet you and help you achieve your learning goals! We'll make you a regular Charlie Parker in no time.

I'm an adult learner with no musical background and I wanted to learn to read music. I met Joey by chance (not through this site) and started getting private lessons from him at home. Music notation never made sense to me until he started to explain how math-based it is (simple math) and that was kind of an eye opener. He is outgoing and patient and clearly loves helping others.

I've known Joe for a long time and he got my 5-year old son started with music. He's too young to play saxophone obviously but I wanted to get him interested in music in general and to have fun with it. Joe taught him some very basic stuff on a kid's digital piano and now my son can't get enough. Hopefully this will keep him interested in music all the way to high school!
